The corpse has cooled over the last three weeks, I think it's appropriate to make this board ours now, respectfully of course.

It would be nice if we have some decent MJHL and even AAA Midget chatter on this board during the winter. Maybe a separate sticky.

Hey HarryI I appreciate the enthusiasm, but can you leave our boards threads to our fans?

If we are going to have a Blue Bomber thread it kinda sucks that the first post in it is from an Als fan.

they'll definately play in one playoff game this year, if not more, so long as Buck stays healthy.

Oh no, I wasn't trying to be a jerk.

The thing is, even though I have been following the Oilers for about 8 years, I've always kinda felt like a guest on the forum, kinda like I haven't had a home for the past 15 years. I know others on here feel the same way.

I just feel like we need to take ownership of this forum and build a family here (I know it will happen naturally)

I just think finally we have a place where WE call the shots and WE get to cheer OUR teams and OUR city (the city many people didn't believe in). I would just rather see our forums being led by Winnipeggers and WinnipegManitobaNHLfranchise fans

Like the first thing you see when you open this thread is GO HABS GO, 3 Canadiens jerseys and that the Alouettes are going to 3peat, in our forum in our CFL team thread.

Maybe I am overreacting, but I just wanted to put it out there in case others felt the same

we need Buck to play a little more smart and take less hits, he has all the tools to be a great QB in the league.

They call him...MR. GLASS!

Gotta give some rep to Perry Floyd, aka "Charles Roberts v2.0". It would be criminal if this guy didn't make the team. Check out some of his college highlights, dude is electric:

Damn I was gonna start this thread, but oh well here it goes.

I am not quite sure what to make of the Bombers this year. Love the secondary for once, been a long time since we have had one this good(Johnson, Beasley, Suber, Hefney, NI Logan with Stewart and Sears both solid guys behind them) and stacked at OLB (Bowman, Kent, and NI Muamba) and DT(Smith, NI Brown, NI Oramasionwu), but I still do not like Lobendahn in the middle, he is much too slow to be an every down player. Unless an unknown steps up they have failed to replace Hunt at DE(Remond Willis looked good in first pre-season game).

Up front it looks like AGAIN we will be using two import tackles, just not smart ratio management esspecially when Scott Mitchell was sitting there waiting to be taken at #1(6'4'' 300lbs left ****ing tackle the EXACT NEED OF THE BOMBERS...WTF!!!). And Glenn January, the magical spinning fat man is back in camp somehow so I am far from sold on this o-line. Which a HUGE problem when Buck "Glass" Piece is you starting QB and there is nothing behind him. I have no faith in Alex Brink, Joey Elliot or Justin Goltz. The RB situation looks awesome with Reid backed up by Garrett who had some great flashes last season and Henderson who looked great in the preseason game. The receivers looked really really deep with returning imports Carr, Edwards, Jeffers-Harris all great players and Perry Floyd looked unreal in preseason game with useless QB's. At NI receiver there's Watson and Hargreaves who both deserve their shot at a starting role coming back with Poblah, Etienne, McHenry, McCoy all there as solid young guys with lots of upside.

So again, there are plenty of positives, but plenty of question marks. But pretty much it going to depend on Pierce staying healthy. He does that, I think they win 7-10 games and make playoffs. He missed 5 or more games and playoffs will not happen. It is clear that LaPolice is trying to build this team like Saskatchewan around NI receivers and a strong D-Line and defensive backs. Clearly the strategy has merit so I am willing to give them time to try to right this ship after Reinbold v2 destroyed this team.
